Anyone who thinks Donna was all bad should check out some of the JGB shows from 76-77 (unfortunately not available here, try bt etree). In more intimate venues and with a 'smaller band' sound she sings like an angel.

In defense of Donna, the stage gear that the Grateful Dead used was extremely loud!!!! Trying to find your note over that was extremely difficult. All the other singers had instruments to reference their notes but Donna had to find hers while being blasted by the rest of the band. That's likely why she sounded so much better with JGB since they had about 1/3 the gear that the Grateful Dead had.
